Update: Greens Prarie Trail Widening Project

  TXDOT’s contractor Knife River plans to begin work on the improvements at the intersection of Greens Prairie Trail & FM 2154 on October 24th. The scope of TXDOT’s project includes adding right and left turn lanes on FM 2154 at the intersection in both the north and south direction. As well as changing the vertical grades of the intersection to help accommodate a smooth transition over the new railroad crossing. The project manager for the TXDOT project is Connie Flickinger.

Also, Greens Prairie Trail between I&GN and FM 2154 and the new railroad crossing  are planned to be opened for use on October 25th. With the opening of Greens Prairie Trail the traffic signal at the intersection with FM 2154 will become active and Brazos County will close the railroad crossing at Straub Road on October 26th. With the new signal coming on line I would request that everyone use caution when approaching the intersection from all approaches and obey the commands of the signal. The vehicles along FM 2154 will have to get used to being mandated to stop at this intersection as well as seeing cross traffic from a 4 leg intersection. 

 


 

The City’s contractor Hassell Construction will begin to place traffic control for phase 1 of the widening project on Monday, October 3rd. With the placement of traffic control along Greens Prairie Trail from FM 2154 to Royder Road. Construction activities will begin immediately on the outside sections of the proposed roadway.

For those who have mail boxes along Greens Prairie Trail, the contractor will be temporarily relocating them to the northwest corner of the Flagstone & Greens Prairie Trail so that the mail currier can access them.

As the project progresses we will provide updates when there are  major construction items that will change the effect of the project for the community (Phase Switch, Road Closures, etc.).
